If you follow along on Instagram, you might recognize this DIY hanging flower installation from a video sneak peek that I shared on Sunday, and trust me, I’m just as giddy over it as you were! It’s a project I’ve been wanting to make for a while now, and the new studio was the perfect white backdrop for it.

I also love the photos Jared took of the finished piece (how awesome is this one below?!), and the fact that he helped me hang every last stem in the middle of a sunny, Friday afternoon while I was battling a severe case of hangry-ness. Somewhere in the middle of the frantic flowering it was true love even if we were way too checked out once everything was done to enjoy it at the time…

Couples Day Date Idea (& win a bike!)

No one ever said dates have to be super elaborate or expensive to be memorable. They also never said being newly self employed was easy, so it’s a good thing there are equally fun alternatives to the “just like the movies” dates that people tend to forget about, like biking to a picnic spot in one of your favorite neighborhoods as a couples day date idea, because that’s the kind of budget we’re on!

I’m also not referring to the Pinterest picnics where someone miraculously packed a fine china cake stand with perfectly iced cupcakes to place next to their dapper, model boyfriend who would never actually be caught dead sitting on a monogrammed cashmere throw in matching outfits in public. No, this is a real life couples day date that you can actually pack in a bicycle basket with your (equally dapper, that part was true) boyfriend and can still be just as cute and thought out as any.

Obviously you’ll need a cute bike to start out, so Brooklyn Bicycle Co. will be giving one lucky reader $499 for a bike of their own! Click through to see how I packed our real life picnic and enter the giveaway, plus I need to show how I put my DIY polka dot bicycle basket to good use…
